-----------------------------Mini Lobster Weekend-------------------
Picture from TropicalMikeHall’s face book.
We call these guys ‘bugs’. The Florida lobster do not has claws. This week was the mini lobster season. It is a few days before the start of lobster season when everyone has a chance to get lobster. Needless to say, as usually, people were arrested for catching lobster before the beginning of the season, for catching more than the limit, for catching too small lobster, and for breaking off the tails before landing the boat.
We have had a few ‘square grouper’ float into the Keys beaches. A square grouper is a bale of marijuana or a brick of cocaine wrapped in plastic. When the Coast Guard starts chasing drug guys they throw the stuff overboard.
South Roosevelt then and now. The road has been paved, a seawall was built and a beach was added.
We leave you this week with a YouTube video by Gary Sadler
